SpecialValueBuy This powerful kitchen multi-tasker is perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping large quantities of fruits, vegetables, meats, and more. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan.

With its curved belly, this chef’s knife can be gently rocked through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. A thinner blade makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style chef’s knives. Plus, oval indentions on the sides of blade reduce friction, ensuring clean, uniform cuts with minimal sticking.

Shun Classic’s tasteful and contemporary design features a beautiful Damascus-clad blade and D-shaped ebony pakkawood handle. Behind the knife’s beauty is function: a razor-sharp blade offering precision performance.

Shun’s VG-MAX steel core—known for its incredible edge retention—is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then bead-blasted, revealing the woodgrain pattern of the steel that allows the blade to slide easily through food. The result is a knife that’s sharp, durable and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.

NSF-certified knife meets the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens. 8" blade. Dishwasher safe, but hand washing is recommended. Limited lifetime warranty. Handcrafted in Seki City, Japan.

Free sharpening on all Shun cutlery for as long as you own it. Click for details
 
VG-MAX “SUPER STEEL” CORE The higher density of VG-MAX steel allows it to be tempered to a Rockwell hardness of 61 and still have the flexibility and strength to take and keep a perfect edge. VG-MAX’s natural tendency is to remain straight and true. When blade is used, the edge automatically straightens out and stays sharp longer.

METICULOUSLY CRAFTED Each Shun Classic knife is constructed using the kasumi method, a traditional Japanese process used to create samurai swords. Sixteen layers of SUS410 high-carbon stainless steel are pounded to 3/1000ths of an inch, then clad on each side of the VG-MAX core. This 32-layer forged construction gives the blade strength, stain resistance, incredible cutting performance and an elegant Damascus pattern unique to each knife.

RAZOR-SHARP BLADE With a cutting edge ground to a 16° angle on each side, this is one of the sharpest knives you’ll ever find. Plus, the exotic Japanese steels used in the cutting core ensure that blade holds its ultra–sharp edge without the need for excessive re–sharpening.

USER–FRIENDLY DESIGN Comfortable D-shaped handle and perfectly balanced blade offer precise control and reduce fatigue during long, repetitive cutting tasks. Handle is made of moisture-resistant pakkawood—a fused blend of hardwood veneers and phenolic resin.

TACKLES EVERYDAY KITCHEN TASKS WITH EASE This powerful kitchen multi-tasker is perfect for slicing, dicing and chopping large quantities of fruits, vegetables, meats and more. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan.

Great Knife
Life all my Shun knives, this thing is amazing. It cuts exceptionally and it easy to handle.

Veggies still do stick to the side of this knife even though it's hollow-edge. But other than that, it is a truly great knife. I don't think I would pay extra for the hollow-edge, though.

I wouldn't get this as your first good knife, though. It can be a bit to handle would recommend getting something closer to 5"" or 6"" since those navigate quickly through whatever you are cutting
